Art Now Inspired by Art Past

Have you ever been so moved by a painting that you've considered recreating it yourself? This selection of nine works from the Seattle Art Museum's permanent collection focuses on the instinct to honor a master with a fresh reaction. A Spanish still life is recreated with hole punches, a British icon is recreated in a photograph, and The Garden of Earthly Delights is taken underwater. Here you are invited to see what artists choose out of our vast visual world, and what they do with it.

–Pam McClusky, Curator of African and Oceanic Art

Seattle Art Museum acknowledges that we are on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish and the customary territories of the Suquamish and Muckleshoot Peoples. As a cultural and educational institution, we honor our ongoing connection to these communities past, present, and future. We also acknowledge the urban Native peoples from many Nations who call Seattle their home.
